Arsène Wenger blasts Chelsea for hypocrisy over £75m transfer spree

Arsène Wenger last night accused Chelsea of hypocrisy after questioning the logic of Roman Abramovich's lavish £76.5m outlay on Fernando Torres and David Luiz despite the Russian owner claiming to support Uefa's policy of financial fair play.

Do not worry about what others are doing Wenger. You're going to beat Chelsea without spending this money. Money does not always successful!

Well said. But honestly I think he should have spent a little himself.

He should have spent some money on a central defender!

I live to the day when Arse-ne will mind his OWN business only..Can't imagine it'll ever happen though.

Torres's price tag was too expensive (I admit) BUT Luiz was very necessary to get !

I wonder Why he didn't buy a CB,no money perhaps ?

Oh come on now.. I expect better from you karim! You're acting like people do on fan club sites!

But 'hypocrisy' is a wrong word!

karim2090d ago

To be honest,I expect better from Wenger but he keeps on surprising me.

rafay2090d ago
